Thank you so much for making the backgrounds transparent .png files! I hate to be high maintenance, but is it too much to ask f toor you make the inside of the frames white? This is how all doodle borders that are .png tend to be. Sorry for any hassle, but thanks again so much! :) Take care!

I just purchased and can open but not sure how to insert text.
You want to insert the graphics into Microsoft Word or Publisher using "Insert Graphic". Then using the "align" tab - you want to send them to "back" or behind text". Then you adraw a text box inside the label.
I am working on a word doc for you where you can just type the text inside the labels - Watch for an email that says the file has been updated.
I love these frames, but the png files are not truly png. They are identical to the jpg, including white several inches around the image. I have never used png files like this is there a trick? I am putting them on a colored background and want a transparent back (around the image) and filled in inside the frame. (This is how all other png files that I have purchased work)
I use Microsoft Word or Publisher. I simply insert the graphic, then once it is selected I click "send behind text" or "send to back" So that your text is on top. When the item is selected you may also move it around or resize it.
The images are white in the middle- but I make them transparent when needed when working in the document using the "make transparent tool" in either Word or Publisher. They are of course hand draw - so they are not perfect - but are large and can be enlarged to page size without a lot of distortion.

The mid sized is closest to the actual graphic when using the insert picture command.
Note: These files were hand drawn with a regular sharie pen and recolored in paint- I just ordered a nice set of fine tip artist pens and will try to see if I can get crisper images in the future... I just thought I would try my hand at these with what I had around the house. It was my first attempt... I am hoping to perfect in the weeks ahead.
